Washer shopped and wouldn't drain, so we started testing. Figured out how to bypass the door switch, and washer started working again. So we knew we needed a door switch. During testing, we also noticed the agitator cogs were worn out too. Probably had been for months, but we wouldn't have noticed. So we ordered switch and cogs. Cogs were super easy, took about 15 minutes, including referring back to diagrams. Switch required removing the cabinet cover, replacing the switch, then putting the cabinet cover back on. Getting the cover back on was the hard part. That is, until I realized it had to be tilted forward first, fit at the front/bottom, then rotated back into place. After that it fit perfectly and washer now works like new again. Saved a LOT of money versus calling a repair service. Very happy! :)
